    Dear Puff members: I was wondering if i can get your opinions and inputs in the art of dry boxing. What is Dry Boxing? ____________________________ Is it necessary? and do you taste a difference? ____________________________ What cigars benefit from dry boxing? (e.g. Maduros, naturals...

    It's the time of the year that our beads/KL get saturated and we look to dry them out, so they can continue to absorb RH For the heck of it, I placed a plate full of beads in the frig to see if I could accelerate the process. So far 5 hrs into it, 1/2 the beads are back to white. Will see hoe...

    I often see on tobaccoreviews.com people say things like 'dry it for a couple of minutes before smoking it'. does leaving it sit on the counter for 5 minutes appreciably change the moisture level?? I would have thought not unless you lay what your going to smoke on a paper towel and your...

    I've got a mixture of some of the tobaccos that I didn't like the most (seems wrong to throw them away) Most of the mixture consists of aromatics, so it's on the goopy side. I've laid the tobacco out to air dry for over a day, and it doesn't seem to get any dryer. Even bowl-size amounts won't...

    I have 65rh beads from HF. my hygro is reading around 70+ due to the recent rain, and also because I'm keeping my cigars in my basement (due to the excessive heat upstairs, I'm worried about beetles). I was just wondering what a good way to dry out the beads would be. the RH outside is pretty...

    Is putting the tobacco you are about to smoke in the microwave for 10 seconds doing any harm to the flavour etc. I notice some tobacco is sooo moist it will not stay lit.:help:

    I have almost tackled this project for years. Now I am thinking about it again and I was wondering if anyone has ever done it. My design idea is simple enough... a small wooden (probably could be plastic) box with a lid. I'd have a computer fan or equivalent rigged for variable speeds on...

    For some reason, I can't post threads in the Habanos area. So, I'm down in South Florida for the winter and I've had the wifey send me a bunch of smokes. They're in various wine fridges at home at 65%. Down here, they won't barely light. I have my house open and refuse to close it and turn on...

    Hey guys, I have a quick question in regards to drying out your baccy before you smoke it. Since a tin lasts me a pretty long time, I immediately put it in a Mason jar after opening the tin. Whenever I want to have a pipe of a certain kind of my tobacco, I have to pull it out of the jar and...

    This is my first winter using 65% beads in my mostly full 300 capacity humidor. Lately, as the furnace (forced hot air) is on more often, which lowers the humidity in the house, the r/h in my humidor is slowly dropping. This morning it was 63% down from 64% for the last two weeks. prior to that...

    Well I got a tin of McBaren's London Burley and a container of Frog Morton on the Bayou. I opened both and have left them in their original containers. Of the two I thought McBarens was a tighter container, but now it seems a little dry, but the Frog Morton is still damp. I'm trying to decide if...

    It seems to be common knowledge that many if not most tobaccos are not packaged at an ideal moisture level for smoking, almost always erring on the side of being too moist. How do you guys like to dehumidify your tobaccos to a smoking level? Also, do you try to dry out the whole tin at once or...

    Just trying to get everyone's method... and whether or not one makes a difference over another in the smoke.

    what is the best way of drying out the beads?
  15. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    How long does it take for 4 oz. of beads to dry in the oven or hair dryer? I had them in the oven at 150 degrees for an hour and they still look clear/opaque and some white. 20%,50% and 30% respectively. I then tried drying with a hair dryer for 10 minutes and they didn't change much.(High heat...

    Is it better to leave the tobacco in the tin to let it dry or do you spread it out on a paper. It seems like it won't dry consistently in the tin. But I was just wondering what are some of your methods. I have brand new tins of: Haddos delight Squadron Leader Penzance 1792 flake Full...

    If you are also a cigar smoker and have frequented this site for more than two days you will know the silica beads (heartfelt or kitty litter) that I am talking about. It is amazing how hygroscopic they are. So I wonder if that would be a good way to dry out a pipe after smoking it. Let it cool...

    I'm still a n00b at this, but I also don't have lot of time to sit and let my tobacco dry; so I had a thought a couple weeks ago when I was making my deer jerky, I used my dehydrator, on the lowest temp, to dry out the tobacco a little quicker. Dried a couple bowls at once; smoked pretty...

    So I think that I messed up a little. I opened a tin of Old Gowrie a few weeks ago and then put the stuff in a mason jar. This stuff was super moist when I first pulled it out and I would set out a bowlful and allow it to dry out for probably about an hour before I even tried to smoke it...
